You want a high speed gouache on your wall. This was the fastest subsonic airliner of the world, a Convair 990 Coronado.

The 990 was a development of the Convair 880 narrow-body jet airliner of 1959. The Convair 990 was extended and faster.

American Airlines asked Convair to design an aircraft for coast-to-coast flights, able to fly non-stop between New York and Los Angeles. However, when test flights began on January 24th, 1961 it did not life up to expectations.
